Afghan National Police, Marines Execute Cordon and Search in Southern Afghanistan

Lance Cpl. Jerry Haines remains vigilant while providing security for a team of female Marines engaging Afghan women during a cordon and search mission Feb. 9, 2009, in Farah province, Afghanistan. Special Purpose Marine Air Ground Task Force-Afghanistan employed a group of female Marines trained to interact with the Afghan female population. Due to cultural sensitivities male Marines are not permitted contact with Afghan females. Haines is a machine gunner with Company I, 3rd Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment (Reinforced), the ground combat element of SPMAGTF-A. SPMAGTF-A's mission is to conduct counterinsurgency operations, with a focus on training and mentoring the Afghan national police.
